Well, it's a rally, what's there more to say? Beautiful sceneries and tactical vehicle setup. Classic.

Ass looks different. It's not Dirt 2 visuals, but not bad either. Would like to see some actual gameplay.

I realy doubt abuot it's realism. Creators have "tunel" track editor that is why it looks like you drive an arcade track. And wheres the damage on rally sim? a? Also visualy it doesnt look anything special. This will be (another) rally game for sure.

I'm hoping this wil be the rally version of Race Pro(I know they're not the same dev).....crappy visuals, buggy as fuck but great realism on gameplay.

Do you practice dumbshit comments like this? Don't be a douche. The "dumb down" you refer to is indicative of people in general- as if it being Americanized has anything to do with how it plays...

Personally, I hope the remaining 30% to be better.

I think you guys are being a bit harsh. It looked to me. For we know that gameplay footage is from the Arcade mode.
I think the graphics in the screenshot look very good and even the gameplay footage looks pretty good.
I think we should at least wait for a proper hands on preview from judging the game.
Commented on 2010-07-14 01:41:22
Yeah, that gameplay vid only shows how bad the helmet/cockpit view is(hope it improves a lot). Gameplay-wise I can't judge until I play the demo(hopefully soon).

I liked the fact that we have all WRC classes available, including Production WRC(Armindo Araújo FTW !!!). Here's hoping te career is done properly implementing all these classes.

Rallisport Challenge 2 is the best rally game ever. After watching that video of this game, I'm so disappointed, and so it looks like we're not getting a decent rally game for a LOOOOOONG time.

possibly the most fun, but it was far too arcady imo. richard burns was one of the best. even the original WRC games and mcrae games.

Rallisport was more arcadey by choice than need, it clearly had the best physics compared to a game like WRC and McRae which are by all means not simulators and had weak physics compared to RSC.
Commented on 2010-07-14 20:27:17
RallySport FTW!! I NEED another one. I probably won't buy another race until that comes to me. Too bad my old xbox isn't working anymore, because I would be hooking up RS2 right now. At least make it backwards compatible...

dont agree, but whatever. prefered the games i listed. rallisport was a nice arcady distraction, but nothing particularly great as far as rally games go.
